    Thanks. I just bought my first house. Its a craftsmen style with a wide front gable facade. I was debating between gable or shed type dormer for the attic space and was just wondering if a shed would look out of place (shed is more practical). Your's blends in pretty nicely with the house. Thanks for your reply. Titus.

    The fence is white cedar, stained white. New England Woodworkers built and installed the fence and gate, as well as other elements on the property. Thank you, Sean

    Hi: The house, which is mine, was designed by myself and Gene Raymond. It was a 1950's ranch style house. We worked with the existing foundation and added on to it, and then built two stories. I can talk to you further about it. Our studio # is 781.741.5455.
    Thank you, Sean

    Sean and Gene, You both did an amazing job with this house redesign. I'm buying a house that is currently only the garage and upstairs portion of your house. I want to add on the other sections to look like this!

    Architectural interest. What makes a cottage charming can be broken down into a few main factors: architectural interest, a lush garden and just-so details. If your cottage has lost some of its natural architectural appeal over the years due to unfortunate remodeling efforts by past owners, you might want to consider building in a little in the form of dormered windows or a covered porch. If you’re not ready to take on a major project, even something as simple as adding a few window boxes can create lots of charm for a very small investment.
